Quanah Parker and Cynthia Ann Parker Exhibit

Starting May 16 the Santa Anna Visitors center will host the
Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker Exhibit.
The Exhibit will be on display May 16 through June 13.

There are 43 seldom seen photographs that depicts the life and times of Quanah Parker and his mother Cynthia Ann Parker and their 2 worlds. Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker are two important names in U.S. frontier history.
Much can to be learned from the dramatic story of these two courageous individuals. In 1836, a Comanche raiding party took Cynthia Ann from her family and over the following years, she became wife to a Comanche chief and mother to children, including Quanah. After Cynthia Ann was taken back by Texas Rangers, Quanah became one of the most important Comanche leaders both in war and peace.
The Lakes Trail Program recognizes the importance of their life stories and is initiating this effort to tell both youths and adults about these two persons and about the many significant places in Texas and Oklahoma important to knowing about their lives.

The Exhibit will be on display May 16 through June 13.
